Learning Abroad will provide you with one of the most exciting, challenging and rewarding experiences or your academic career! We are here to help you choose a program and make the most out of it! You are welcome to send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or come into our office in Union room 159 Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm (except for holidays).
Here is our advice on how to get started:
1. Start a Program Search
- Use criteria to search for the program that's the best fit for you
- Search by location, term, program type, language of instruction, field of study (major), and more!
- This is a one-time information session that can be completed in person or on-line. All students must complete this 45-60 minute session in person or online before meeting with a coordinator or submitting an application. Our office will check off this requirement on your application within 5 business days.
- All Learning Abroad 101 information can be made available in an alternative format with prior notification to the Center for Disability Services. The Center for Disability Services will work with you and Learning Abroad to make arrangements for accommodations.
Learning Abroad 101 In-Person
Join a Learning Abroad Peer Advisor at an in-person session. We highly recommend this option!
- Questions are welcome! All of our presenters have learned abroad themselves and are happy to help!
- Please arrive on time at the designated location (varies each week) and stay for the entire duration of the session.
- All session dates, times, and locations are found on our Calendar.

3. Identify your Goals
Maybe you want to use your time abroad to hone your language skills, conduct research that will prepare you for graduate school, focus on developing career skills, or engage with the local community. Identifying what you want to get out of your program is a critical step to the application process. Once you've completed Learning Abroad 101, feel free to meet with your Learning Abroad Coordinator if you're having trouble with this.
4. Determine Academic Needs
If you want your Learning Abroad Program to be incorporated into your academic plan, you will want to discuss this with your Academic Advisor(s) early on so that they can help you identify what requirements you need to fulfill before graduation.
After you have found your perfect program you are ready to start an online application!
